Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

Suspect 32GB USB flash drives from new ebay seller aibann

The 32GB USB flash drive pictured in this ebay listing (item number 250761410542) look highly suspect to us – we think these are fake capacity USB flash drives from a fraudulent wholesale outlet in China. If we are right (and we are sure we are) anyone who buys one will find it corrupts files after a while.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
